Petit Dolls by Heike Andrea Grote with Music by Ralf Grote

Here is a video out of my "Petit Doll" sketches and paintings with the nusic by my lovely husband.

"You are an artist", Suzi says so!

Painting by Suzi Blu.

During my travel through the internet for new inspiration in art I discovered lovely Suzi Blu. First I watched her videos , which are a mixture between modern art and teaching creativity course. I am still excited to view her little films which are edited in an amazing way.
Next step was to enlist me as student at Suzi Blu's Le Petit Academy . This was the first time for me to be a member of an online school. And it is GREAT! I joined the "Petit Doll Beginner" workshop and have fun since then. The principle is, that if you enlist yourself for a workshop you could download all teaching videos of this one workshop during a limited time (semester) of some month. After the workshop is closed, you can watch the videos still on your computer forever.
I like her way, to encourage people to do art: "You are an artist", Suzi says so!
You are my hero Suzi!

Here i s one of her many fabulous videos. I can recommend to watch more of her videos warmly to you.

Here you can watch the amazing art which my fellow students created :

My first ATC "An Angel For you" painted by Beth Meador

Here you can see the first ATC (Artist Trading Card) which I have received, created by my dear friend Beth Meador. This card is a treasure for me. I love the wonderful painting of this angel. Beth is legally blind and will eventually go completely blind. There is no way to know when that will happen, but she has had a decrease in vision over the last couple of years and is down to 1% of vison remaining. She has a hereditary condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa.

For more detailed information about Beth and Retinitis Pigmentosa please go to the ATC page of my website
